Words & Music Festival
December 6, 2017 @ 10:30 am - December 10, 2017 @ 11:30 am UTC-6
The Faulkner Society’s annual festival, Words & Music, a Literary Feast in New Orleans combines the three most important facets of Faulkner Society’s mission: providing realistic assistance to developing writers, staging entertaining and enlightening programming for dedicated readers, and creating literary initiatives for those at risk for illiteracy. The overall theme for Words & Music 2017 is: War & Collateral Damage as Inspiration for the Arts.
The theme covers a lot of ground, from writing about the wars of history to contemporary conflagrations in global hotspots such as the Middle East and the literary art that has been inspired by war and its impacts.
The Faulkner Society’s year-round events for readers are designed as opportunities for the members of the general reading public to continue their adult education through reading good literature, presented in the framework of literary themes. Beginning on Thursday, December 7, a series of discussions by some of the best writers and scholars of our time will explore how transforming art is inspired by the evil of war and its impact on us all.
The primary venue is the National Literary Landmark Hotel Monteleone, 214 Royal Street, (504) 523-3341. The hotel has reserved rooms under the bloc Words & Music/Faulkner Society at a special conference price, first come, first serve.
